While it deals with the loss of a husband and the guilt of losing a best friend, it is very clean and gentle. While it is appropriate for teenaged reading, a thriller-seeking teen will probably be bored with this. (less)

Sometimes I want something light to read. This was a perfect read for one of those times. This is light and predictable and I really enjoyed it. I liked all the characters and felt like I really got to know them. I look forward to the next in this series. Thanks to my GR friend DeAnn for recommending this one.

Three and a half stars. This makes no apologies for what it is - a gentle story about love, loss and ability to move on or not after a tragedy. Sometimes as a reader I am not in the mood for anything heavy and challenging. I just want a book that will take me out of the world for a while. This one did, into the world of Cedar Cove and of Jo Marie who after the death of her husband starts a new life as owner of a bed and breakfast.

Writing a story combining three different plots is a challenge. I thought The Inn at Rose Harbor fell into the usual trap of this kind of plot: there is great potential, too much to tell and not enough space for it all; therefore we get a superficial at best narrative. Some people might like this kind of book, but it's not my kind of fiction. However, I should point out that it's well written and all three stories offer a superficial character development and a fair emotional setting.

I was so excited to see a new series by Macomber; she is one of my favorite authors. This first book in her new series was a breath of fresh air during this hot humid summer.
The series is set in Cedar Cove but the characters are new. Jo Marie Rose has moved there upon the death of her husband after purchasing a Bed & Breakfast. Story lines were developed around two guests that checked into the B&B. They were heartwarming stories of families and relationships. I especially liked that the

This was actually a buddy read with a friend of mine. We both adored the Cedar Cove books and we have been less than thrilled with the newest offerings by Macomber. When she found out the Rose Harbor books take place in Cedar Cove we were pretty excited. Though I was cautious enough to borrow this thing from the library because I have been burned too many times lately by reading her latest works.

My friends summary of this book was this:

Those of you who pay attention know that I almost NEVER give 5 stars to anything. A book has to really reach out and grab me to get more than 3.... so..... This book really hit home with me, and perhaps my feelings about it are more emotionally tied than anything else, but for whatever reason....

The book deals with loss and grief, with acceptance, with moving forward. Ms. Macomber lost her son not too long ago, and one of my best and oldest friends lost her son over the summer. So this tied in w

Well, gosh. Maybe I've outgrown Macomber. Or maybe I just glutted myself too much in past years and now am at that familiarity brings...not contempt, exactly, but the heart just no longer thrills. This has happened to me with other authors after a bit of directed literary gluttony; I love them, I gobble all the books I can find, and then, finally, it's "oh no, not another bite of delicious crumbly cookies with a latte on the side".

For Macomber's fans, this is the standard territory, and obviousl

This is a typical Debbie Macomber book - a gentle little story about family dynamics that is easy to read and has a happy ending. Sometimes I'm in the mood for that kind of a book, and Debbie Macomber usually satisfies. This book, however, left me feeling a little disgruntled. I understand the desire to bring back characters from her Cedar Cove stories; I've read some of those books, and wouldn't mind an update on what the characters are doing now. But so many of them made appearances in slightl ...more

Uma história docinha que nos fala de novos recomeços e de avançarmos em frente, mesmo quando a vida é madrasta. Pelo final claro que vai ter seguimento e eu vou tentar ler quando quiser ler um livro leve e que me deixe bem disposta e a pensar que existem finais felizes

I am a great Debbie Macomber fan, and I knew that I would love "The Inn at Rose Harbor"--I just didn't know how much I would love it! I was immediately and deeply affected by the character of Jo Marie Rose, and the terrible loss of her husband so soon after her marriage. Adding extra poignancy to the story was the tragic real-life death of a young, newly-married soldier in my home community. He was also killed while on active duty. I had just seen his picture, and then the follow-up story on his ...more

The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber
Love this book just for the knitting mentioned and how I can totally relate to having more than 3 projects going at one time.
Jo Marie had relocated to run the existing B&B after her husband Paul passes away in the war.
The book follows her life and interactions with other local people and protectors.
Josh Weaver is a guest at the inn and is in town for just a few short days to reclaim things his step dad has kept at the family house. He is on his deathb

Super easy read and very much a feel good kind of book. I accidentally read this one, as the cover resembled one on my TBR shelf. I decided to keep going with it once I realized my error and had an enjoyable afternoon wrapped in the story.

The story takes place in Cedar Cove, Washington where JoMarie Rose has just purchased a B&B. Still grieving for her husband who was killed in Afganistan, she is ready for the next challenge in her life. The story revolves around her settling in (and I antic

I have read and enjoyed many of Debbie Macomber's books, but this book was not a favorite of mine. It appears I am about the only person who didn't care for this book..There were some weird parts I didn't care for at all. (They almost bordered on paranormal) And anyone who follows my reading genres knows I hate paranormal. Maybe I have read to many of her many books made into sequels or series. Knowing that this is the first of a series, I was disappointed. I'm beginning to enjoy much more, book ...more

Nije loša knjižica. Prati mladu ženu čiji muž je nestao u Afganistanu i ona se seli, kupuje mali pansion koji iznajmljuje raznolikim ljudima. U isto vrijeme pokušava zacijeliti sebe i pomaže gostima da isto riješe neke svoje probleme. S njom upoznajemo raznoliku paletu likova iz malog gradića.

Beautiful book that I will admit I wasn't going to read until the announcement that it would take place in Cedar Cove. I fell in love with Cedar Cove and relished the opportunity to return. I'm SO glad I did. Jo Marie is on this beautiful, spiritual journey of healing and self-discovery. And she, and her Inn, are going to help others along the way.

In this book we get the stories of two people who both vowed never to return to Cedar Cove after horrible circumstances chased them away. The first i

Carinhoso é como posso definir este livro. Todo ele é ternurento, todo ele cura ao longo das suas poucas páginas os corações, tanto das personagens fictícias como das pessoas reais que nele pegam.

Um acontecimento terrível que muda a vida de Jo Marie Rose para sempre e, quem diria que, ao mudá-la, Jo, curando-se a si própria ainda vai curar outras duas pessoas. . .

Um romance que é claramente para o público feminino, consegue fazer o que se espera. Colocar as leitoras a suspirar.

Esta foi a minha estreia com a autora, e fiquei rendida: adoro Debbie Macomber!
Neste romance, vamos acompanhar a história da protagonista, Jo Marie, que enviuva precocemente e por isso decide mudar radicalmente de vida tornando-se proprietária de uma estalagem, e de dois dos seus hóspedes, sendo que cada capítulo vai narrando a história de cada um, alternadamente. Isto vai contribuir para uma leitura compulsiva, pois cada capítulo encerra de uma forma perspicaz, que nos faz desejar saber o que v

Take a dollop of golden syrup, a ton of saccharine and as many coincidences as you can imagine and there you have the first book in Macomber's (never heard of her though she's sold150 million books) new series. 3 interwoven stories set in a small town B & B in America (which Jo Marie has just opened to get over the loss of soldier husband Paul) see all 3 impossibly attractive characters achieve peace and love from beyond the grave.

An easy light read that is satisfying and comforting in many ways. It’s the type of book that makes you want to curl up with a big mug of tea in your favorite chair and read for hours. Very character driven, it centers around a woman who recently became a widow and decides to buy an Inn in the state of Washington with the inheritance from her husband‘s passing. Enter the first two guests, and you have all three stories. A little romance, a little magical realism, some grief, and a dog thrown in, ...more

This was beautiful. Soft, sensitive, heartbreaking and with such elegance; I am totally emotional. Jo Marie is a wonderful character and to meet Olivia and Grace again was fantastic. Cedar Cove is a special place and the pictures in my head are perfect. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

The cover of this book has a sticker on it stating that Debbie Macomber has sold 150 million books worldwide, so I’m ashamed to say that this is the first book of hers I’ve read! I was pleased to hear that this is the first book in a new series set in and around the Inn at Rose Harbor, Cedar Cove. (If you have read Macomber’s other books that were set in Cedar Cove, you may recognise a few characters I believe).

If I had to confine this review to just one word, it would be ‘nice’. It’s a nice sto
